What is Luxury Vinyl?
With advancements in technology and increased demand for water-resistant residential and commercial flooring that doesn’t come up short on quality and style, vinyl flooring is quickly making a new name for itself as luxury vinyl.
Luxury vinyl – including locking planks and tiles, groutable tiles, and engineered vinyl plank – is the fastest-growing product category in the floor-covering industry today. It is a more affordable alternative to genuine hardwood, tile, and stone, with none of the drawbacks!
With luxury vinyl, you can choose from realistic naturally textured grouted tile floors in any number of gorgeous patterns, or beautiful waterproof hardwood looks for your kitchen, basement, or anything in between.

Luxury Vinyl Planks
Luxury Vinyl Planks let you choose from wood, tile, and stone looks in various different widths and lengths. The products feature incredibly realistic visuals designed to replicate an unlimited variety of genuine flooring products from traditional and exotic hardwood to ceramic tile and Carrera marble.
Luxury vinyl plank (and tile) is made up of several different layers that combine to provide unparalleled resiliency in any space. With residential warranties ranging from 10 years to lifetime and commercial warranties for any application, the durable top layer resists rips, gouges, scratches, and scuffs to help the beauty of the printed middle design layer shine through. The bottom layer is a high density water-resistant (or waterproof) vinyl – available in locking or glue-down profiles – to stabilize and strengthen the product and add durability and resilience.
Luxury vinyl plank can be installed in any area of your home or business; on, above, or below grade level (the ground level outside the home), over concrete, plywood, particle board, and even existing vinyl or tile flooring. Based on your installation space and the product you select, Luxury Vinyl can be installed by gluing directly to the substrate or – when conditions are not perfect – as a floating floor (inter-locking at the edges – not glued or nailed down).
With the incredible warranties from the industry’s top manufacturers, unparalleled installation versatility, and the look to match any décor or budget, it’s no wonder luxury vinyl is the new leader in synthetic hard surface flooring.
Luxury Groutabble Vinyl Tile
Luxury Groutable Vinyl is a warmer and softer, lower cost alternative to genuine tile and natural stone hard-surface flooring. Groutable vinyl products promote a more pet-and-family friendly living space by offering all of the benefits of a tile floor with none of the drawbacks. Groutable vinyl is easier to care for than genuine tile or stone, softer underfoot, and more functional for busy homes with crawling babies, pet fur and odors, and the occasional dropped dish.
Groutable vinyl tile gives you the freedom to explore an almost unlimited design pallet. With tile sizes ranging from 8” by 8” to 12” by 24” and 16” by 16”, what truly defines this category is the opportunity to achieve an incredible variety of designs and patterns with an unparalleled realistic look and feel. The added option of color-coordinated grout creates the differentiating look of professionally installed genuine tile or natural stone.
